|Cuban night lizard|
Gundlach & Peters, 1863
The Cuban night lizard (Cricosaura typica) is a night lizard that lives exclusively in the west corner of the southern-most coast of Cuba. It is the smallest of the night lizards, at less than 4 cm. It is the only member of the genus Cricosaura, one of three in the night lizard family.
Like all night lizards, the Cuban night lizard is viviparous, giving live birth to its young. It differs from the other night lizards in possessing two frontonasal scales, one frontal scale, no parietal scale, and a fourth finger with four phalanges.
